Calling the Nations to repentance- this website is for a mature public   The Verdict    Be Born Again
 
 

It is written:

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds where framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. ... But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." -Hebrews 11:1-3, 6 KJV [Get your Bible and read all of Heb. 11:1-39]

"But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double minded man, unstable in all he does." -James 1:6-7

"What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, 'Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,' but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead." -James 2:14-17

"In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief and all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith- of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire- may prove genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls." -1 Peter 1:6-9

"Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who through the righteousness of our God and
Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours: and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.

Making One’s Calling and Election Sure
"His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self- control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins.
Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." -2 Peter 1:1-11 NIV

" ...a faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time, " -Titus 1:3

 "In conclusion, be strong in the Lord—be empowered through your union with Him; draw your strength from Him—that strength which His [boundless]-might provides.  Put on God’s whole armor—the armor of a heavy-armed soldier, which God supplies--that you may be able successfully to stand up-against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil.  For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood—contending only with physical opponents-but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.
Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].  Stand therefore—hold your ground—having tightened the belt of truth around your loins, and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God;  And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the firm-footed stability, the promptness and the readiness produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace. [Isaiah 52:7.]  Lift up over all the (covering) shield of saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].  And take the helmet of salvation and the sword the Spirit wields, which is the Word of God.  Pray at all times—on every occasion, in every season—in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God's consecrated people).
-Ephesians 6:10-18  Amplified Bible

PREPARE MY FEET TO RUN WITH THE GOSPEL OF PEACE   Lord, today wherever my feet take me I will represent the good news of Jesus. I will use my life to be an expression of Your deep inner peace. Your Word says “beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news." Today I will bring the good news of Jesus and the power of what He did on the cross to a dying and hurting world.


SHIELD OF FAITH  Father today I take up the shield of faith which will, according to your Word, extinguish the flaming arrows of the enemy. The shield will not only stop the flaming arrows, but as I choose to stay behind the shield in humility I will be protected from every assault that comes against me. Today I declare with my mouth that You, 0 Lord, are the only true and living God and my faith is in You and You alone.


SWORD OF THE SPIRIT Lord, today I take up the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. It is alive and active and sharper than any two-edged sword. Today I choose to apply the Word of God and its wisdom to every situation I face. I will hide Your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You. From Your Word I will seek wisdom, discernment and direction as I seek to do Your will. Your Word will be the weapon I deploy to defeat the schemes of the enemy.

HELMET OF SALVATION  Father this morning I put on the helmet of salvation to guard my mind today. Guard what I think, hear, see, and speak and I subject every thought to the Lordship of Jesus. Help me to take every thought captive to make it obedient to Christ. I declare today that I have the mind of Christ according to your Word.


BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
I put on the breastplate of righteousness to guard my heart, my will and my emotions. It is not my righteousness, but the righteousness of Christ through what He did on the cross.  Today I am honored to live out of His righteousness that He places within me.  Father protect me from reacting to circumstances and people emotionally.  Let me respond with the Spirit of Christ, and not out of my emotions.


BELT OF TRUTH  Father I put on the belt of truth. Jesus You are the Truth--Satan you are a liar.  Today I choose to believe the truth about who God is and who I am in Christ. I am a son /daughter of God, joint heirs with Christ. I have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus. I have been filled with the Holy Spirit and today I will live a victorious life according to the Word of God which is truth.  

PRAYER: Lord, I thank you for giving me the full armor of God which will protect me today. As I put on the armor I seal this act in confidence in Christ and His finished work. I place a hedge of protection around myself and my family. I ask that by Your Spirit You guard and protect me so that I can accomplish all that You ask me to do. Lord, I consider it a privilege to love and serve You and I declare with my mouth that there is none like You. I love You with all my heart; You are a good Father. May my life be pleasing to You. I worship you in spirit and in truth.


Father, I come to you this morning and I put on the full armor of God.  AMEN
